Merry Christmas....with love...

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all are having a great week. Again, we are approaching the weekend, time flights. I am still struggling with my Christmas cards.. Next year I will need to start earlier...or...send regular cards, no handmade ones... hahaha LOL.... Did you finish yours?...Well, in the meantime I want to show you another 2 cards using an unusual stamp... ( note that I used nearly the same combination of color, papers and embellishment)

I made the first card using the Magnolia Stamp from the Halloween Collection. This is part of my DT work in Roses on Paper, where you can purchase all the below materials highlighted in blue.

For my second card I'm using this beautiful stamp from HÄnglars & StÄmplar and the circle stamps is from Magnolia ( Christmas collection- Post Merry Christmas)

Materials for both cards:
-Inks: Distress Ink.
- Paper: My Mind's Eye.
-Embellishment: Drew Drops, ( The green are from Poinsettia bottle and the brown are from Men's bottle) , Charms, Ice Stickles, mesh, buttons, Prima Flowers, gems and brads from stash.
Tools: Punch from Martha Stewart.

Have fun!!

LIM :))
